4:21 am
still deposits lie deep underground and unlike natural gas shale is widely available in the u.s. which means the country doesn't have to pay for imports. for the shale revolution stemmed from high gas prices the main question right now is how will the shale gas industry survive now the gas prices are one hundred two hundred fifty dollars a barrel which is four times less than they were five years ago when shell development began. this pipe that european countries are also looking at potential shale gas resources on their territory albeit with some hesitation rights now it's more whole then facts and we have really to think realistically about this source of energy we don't want to think it did terms of cause in russia and like america had thought another potential plus of shale of course is stopping

countries dependence on russia which the plays most of europe with natural gas where we are already saying that if shale deposits are found in europe. the advantage of supplying gas to other countries what's been hundreds of rebels from power don't seem to be losing any sleep over their supposedly. fuel here's why. we're watching the situation and withing that local it's very viable but it will remain a local gas supply it's impossible to extract gas to last for long and if you look at the shale gas suppliers right now you'll see that most of them are losing money dog or shale gas may be easily available but it's the gulf and. does not come cheap about what you ordered to get shale gas horizontally incessant crap that needs the profit margin of the process gets lost very fast. and though the above on
4:23 am
ministration has hailed shale as an environmentally friendly out for the natural gas the recent studies have put this on the question several scandals have already broken out in the us because of the thanks of shale gas development only environment and people's health. chill gases extracted by hydro fracking special chemicals around into the water to break up the rock formation components of these chemicals are kept secret by the companies in the united states and claim it's a commercial secret but that water laced with chemicals ends up in drinking water so shell gas development poses a serious threat to the environment and health care in the united states may have outdone russian gas production two years ago but like any seeming miracle cure shale gas me prove yet another false and dangerous economy. and what's happening in the world the business with.

4:25 am
happened with the s. and p. creating weakness some strength from the dollar it was actually the weakness in the euro this chasing money into the dollars right now both the problems in europe and the problems in the us in theory it should lead to strengthening in the ruble as an alternative currency so we drove but unfortunately for russia the ruble and russian assets in general are still considered to be risky so whenever there's an increase in risk anywhere in the world people tend to run away from from the real. in japan they expose full knowledge both with first time for the first time in sixteen years by two point two percent it's one of the first official results following the earthquake and tsunami disaster the country's trade surplus also fell has dropped nearly eight percent to two point four billion dollars which is three times lower than previously expected and analysts see bleak prospects with recession and construction in the japanese economy continuing in the coming months. that's how
